JY008 - Saint Nicholas
Estery and aromatic, Saint Nicholas is a beautiful Belgian yeast strain suited for a wide variety of Belgian-style beers, such as blonde ales, Belgian pale ales, as well as the classic Singel, Dubbel, Tripel and Quadruples. The yeast is very fruity and does well on a wide range of temperatures. At the lower temperatures, maltiness is more prominent, and at the upper range yeast esters are more pronounced. Like some other Belgians, it needs stepmashing to really attenuate well.
